Two former teammates. One was buried in Los Angeles yesterday. The other will return to an Atlanta courtroom tomorrow, accused of double murder. Two former teammates. Two members of the NFL's elite. Two friends of former Ravens safety Stevon Moore, and many others. Maybe Ray Lewis thought about Eric Turner while he was sitting in court last week. Maybe it hit him how quickly it all can slip away. Turner, 31, died last Sunday, apparently from complications of abdominal cancer. Two weeks earlier, he had denied he was gravely ill, saying in a statement that he wanted to keep the issue private.

The secondary should be one of the Ravens' most entertaining groups.First, free safety Eric Turner and strong safety Stevon Moore are two of the NFL's hardest hitters. They are the inspirational leaders of the defense. And their performance as run stoppers and especially in pass coverage -- where the Ravens will employ more man-to-man in defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis' scheme -- will go a long way toward dictating the season's outcome.Turner is recovered from a back injury that forced him to miss the last half of the 1995 season.

It was a Kodak moment yesterday: Starting center Steve Everitt, right tackle Orlando Brown and left guard Jonathan Ogden all were riding stationary exercise bicycles.That's 60 percent of the Ravens' starting offensive line, and all three missed practice yesterday because of injuries.Everitt, shirtless while riding the cycle, will not play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams because of an injured pectoral muscle.Brown, using a cane to get around, is questionable with foot and knee injuries. Ogden, the team's No. 1 draft pick, is also questionable because of a sprained knee.

Ravens defensive end Anthony Pleasant is still listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, although he may have answered the question about his status yesterday when he did not practice.Pleasant aggravated his sprained ankle -- which he injured early in the season opener against Oakland -- at Wednesday's practice. Coach Ted Marchibroda called it a "minor setback."Before suffering the injury, Pleasant had gone nearly two years without missing a game. He has missed four weeks of practice and is on the verge of missing his third straight game, even after resting the ankle for several days during the team's bye week.

Now, it's OK to use the R-word -- rebuilding -- about the Ravens.A year ago, after the move from Cleveland to Baltimore, owner Art Modell brought in first-year coach Ted Marchibroda to try to rekindle the passions of a lot of the veterans that had made the Browns a playoff team in 1994.It didn't work.The Ravens finished 4-12 and had the worst-ranked defense in the NFL. So during the off-season, Modell and Ozzie Newsome, the team's vice president of player personnel, kept their January promise of releasing 30 percent of the roster.

With much of their off-season paperwork done and with a productive draft and some promising free-agent signings behind them, the Ravens are eager to get a glimpse of the chemistry they've created this spring.Starting tomorrow and over the next two weeks, the new-look Ravens will gather for a full minicamp at the team's Owings Mills complex."It's exciting. We're anxious to get these guys, this entire squad, on the field together for the first time," Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda said. "No. 1, we want to familiarize them with the terminology they're going to be using.

Quote of the year: Ravens owner Art Modell after 6-foot-8, 320-pound rookie G Jonathan Ogden took a red-eye flight from California to Baltimore, and then his mother called to request that he miss the first day of rookie training camp because he was tired. "Yeah, so we sent him to his room with some milk and cookies," said Modell.Fortune teller: Waived RB Leroy Hoard left some parting advice for TE Harold Bishop and RB Earnest Hunter after it had been speculated for weeks all three would be cut to free up money to sign Bam Morris and Eric Green: "When your coach says things like that about you that I've seen in the paper, he might as well start boxing his [stuff]

It had been five weeks since the Ravens enjoyed this kind of celebration. Tight end Eric Green was taunting his former teammates along the sideline. Bam Morris was adding the latest steps to his Bamarama dance. The Ravens were talking much trash in the locker room, as if they had won a conference championship or a Super Bowl. But let the Ravens talk. They deserved to after defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-17, yesterday before 51,822 at Memorial Stadium, ending a four-game losing streak with their first AFC Central victory of the season.

DENVER -- A week ago, after the Ravens lost to the Indianapolis Colts, several players and coach Ted Marchibroda proclaimed they had come together as a team.Today at 4 p.m., the Ravens (2-4) should find out if they indeed have come together, or if they were just trying to put a positive spin on an agonizing loss, when they meet the Denver Broncos (5-1) at Mile High Stadium.The Ravens, despite losing two starters on the defensive line for the season, played perhaps their best game in the 26-21 loss to Indianapolis.

The Ravens' defense was as thin as the air surrounding Denver's Mile High Stadium yesterday. It began the game without four starters and with a new defensive scheme, and left confused after surrendering 548 yards of total offense and six touchdowns. In case one has missed the last three weeks of Ravens football, the replay was on display before 70,453 yesterday in the Denver Broncos' 45-34 victory. On a day when quarterback Vinny Testaverde completed 27 of 45 passes for 338 yards and four touchdowns against a defense ranked No. 1 in the AFC and No. 3 in the league, the Ravens' defense turned in another dud. Broncos quarterback John Elway, who completed 25 of 39 passes for 326 yards, ended the marathon shootout with a 9-yard touchdown run with 1 minute, 16 seconds remaining.
